Awkward Hugs is by C. Reider, a guest from Vuzh Music netlabel. "This is some work I did in 2007, directly after ending my work with the drone collective Drone Forest. I wanted to do some music that fell far outside of that group's constraints (no beat, no melody). This music reflects an interest in minimal techno that I had at the time. The exploration of beat-oriented material during this time eventually led to the series of releases I called The Electret Quintet, which merged the accessible material presented here with a more experimental approach." Credits : "August" contains a drum loop by Harlan Lyman. "Fast Hands" contains the voice of Matthew Westra, from a public domain audiobook of "Complete Hypnotism, Mind-Reading and Spiritualism" by A. Alpheus.
